    If you spot yourself, please let us know which magazine and WHICH PAGE; and the name the article appears under if it differs from your Talkback name. If you spot someone else, PLEASE LET THEM post the details here.
  • Rumour has it that a certain TBer will have their debut article in this issue.
  • Received mine. :)

    Brilliant!

    Baggy has posted a picture on Facebook, so I'm now eagerly awaiting for the post- won't be here until nearer midday.
  • I had a slight iffy moment when I went to the page number per the index. They must have shuffled the content after that page had been finalised.

    Excellent article, Carol. Well done.

    I was shortlisted in the 750 word story comp :)

  • It's arrived. Mentioning no names, but there's a fabulous article to read.

    Congratulations, Heather! Saw one or two other familiar names as well.

    Good job I hadn't got around to cancelling my subscription!

    I haven't renewed, and I'm not sure which issue is my last one. Guess I'll find out in the next couple of days.

    Carol, it's so clearly written. You have a calm voice.



    It was a hard article to put together in a way that would make sense however much or little a reader might know, and at the same time combine past facts, the viewpoints of those involved now, plus potential outcomes.

    Have to say a big thank you to the assistant editor Tina for her skills too.


  • Well done, Carol and Heather!
    Thanked by 2heather Carol
  • Well done Carol - your article might even persuade me to start writing short stories for Womags!

    And congratulations Heather.

    It arrived this morning. Well done with your article, Carol - very clearly written.
    I've just read the Letters page and see that WM have excelled themselves this time with the same letter printed twice. [-X

  • No! I haven't read mine yet. TBH, I have spotted problems on just a flick-through. Not their finest hour - apart from Carol and Heather, of course. :)
  • Jonathan needs to give his proofing editor a good kick up the backside. There are far too many errors - especially embarrassing in a magazine aimed at writers. Even Carol's bio has an error and I'd lay odds the error isn't hers.
  • I spotted that one. It's shoddy and disappointing.

    Claudia, the extra 's' was mine :\"> and I meant to tell Tina about it but forgot in the rush to get off to Leeds. When I remembered I assumed it would be picked up...
  • ClaudiaClaudia
    Well that's very honest of you, Carol, but you were quite right to assume they'd pick it up!
  • Great article Carol.

    Well done, Heather. Very informative article, Carol. So easy to think publication is all and miss the possibly exploitative small print.
